Liz is a registered nurse and midwife proudly working for the NHS for 22 years, employed as a registered midwife for the last 13 years.
Her focus has always been maintaining high quality, evidence based, compassionate care. For 9 years she has worked, led and studied in critical care nursing. This gave an incredible grounding to her nursing career but she was fascinated by pregnancy and childbirth. Liz made the best decision of her career when she trained as a midwife. It remains a privilege to support women by advocating for maternal choice; maintaining safety throughout their transition to motherhood.
As a reflective practitioner Liz has always sought new training and education and uses her role in the practice education team to offer development and support to our midwives through innovation and challenging health inequality. Through professional coaching, leadership development and personal study, Liz is keen to support the national patient safety agenda with service transformation, culture change and professional support of midwives. She has a particular interest in human factors, psychological safety and compassionate leadership in midwifery and she is pursuing opportunities to develop these areas.
